The GIsML Project

GIsML = Guided Inquiry supporting Multiple Literacies
"Guided" in the name signifies our view of the teacher’s role as one of mediating student thinking and activity, which includes:

  • modeling scientific activity and thinking
  • questioning
  • "seeding" ideas or language
  • privileging some ideas or language over others
  • refocusing student thinking and activity
  • thinking aloud about instructional decisions
